“Great food”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

This roadside place with outdoor and enclosed- but- openair seating, has a very large menu and the food is great. There were 5 of us eating and we all had something different and all agreed it was really good. Coming from Waikiki, it was a bargain also. The staff was very friendly. Our only complaint was that because it was open air eating there were flies, even at the outdoor picnic tables where it was a breezy day. Perhaps the best way to eat here would be to take it and go somewhere else to eat. I would recommend this place and will definitely go back there.

“Good for a quick bite on the road”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

After snorkeling and driving all day my crew was starved when we hit Waimanalo and this was one of the first places we saw when looking online for a place to eat. It's not fancy and the outside dining areas leave something to be desired. However we had really good pulled pork, fries were very good, the fish and shrimp were ok but not anything to get excited about.

Overall for a quick bite it served the purpose. If we were there again I'd likely try something else.

“Great good, friendly, and quick”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

When we want something quick, Keneke's is just a few minute walk from our condo. They are quick in serving, give decent size portions (sometimes one portion is enough for 2 people), and they are friendly. The food is pretty good, and you can do take out. Give them a try, you'll go back for seconds.

“Very good, very reasonable, a LOT of food!”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

We were starving, as we drove around the island after snorkeling at Hanauma Bay. Wanted to find a good local place that had lots of cars. That's usually a sign that the food is good. For less than $9, you can get a good dish. We ordered 2 chicken teriyakis. The only mistake we made is that they give you a LOT of food! A huge serving of boneless teriyaki chicken, 2 big scoops of white rice, and 1 big scoop of macaroni salad. We realized we should have shared one plate. We took the rest home for later though. So just remember that if you don't want to take it home or throw it out, one order for 2 people is plenty!

“Enjoyed it”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Stopped here on the way to the north shore for a quick lunch. Food was good. Had Kahlua pork, rice and mac salad. Portions were good and a fairly good value especially for Hawaii. Would go again if we were in the area.
